A buildout recipe to install NodeJS packages locally using npm

Project Description

A zc.buildout recipe to install NodeJS packages locally using npm.

This recipe will install wanted packages in the local node_modules directory, and create a link to binaries in the buildout bin directory.


packages:required, a list of package names to install (can specify a version with the syntax name@version).
node_path:absolute path to the node executable, by default the bin/node in buildout directory.
npm_path:absolute path to the npm executable, by default the bin/npm in buildout directory.
 set to ‘true’ to strip the .js extension sometimes present on binaries (default is ‘false’).


Using a locally compiled NodeJS:

recipe = zc.recipe.cmmi
url =
bin_node = ${buildout:parts-directory}/nodejs/bin/node
bin_npm = ${buildout:parts-directory}/nodejs/bin/npm

recipe = rodacom.buildout.npm
node_path = ${nodejs:bin_node}
npm_path = ${nodejs:bin_npm}
packages = coffee-script@1.6.3

Known bugs

  • The links generated in the ‘bin’ directory are not removed on uninstall.
